Sunny Shetland

What a great sunny still day with plenty of birds about. No rarities but some nice common migrants

First a stop up at Sumburgh but only a few migrants with Redstart, Blackcap, Redwing, Goldcrest (2) Pied Flycatcher and Robin(2)

The quarry was quiet as well with a Robin and Blackcap along with a flock of Twite. A large flock of Meadow Pipit and Skylark followed me along the road

A willow Warbler at Grutness garden and at Toab. The Semi Palmated Sandpiper returned to the same area of beach at Grutness as the previous three days attracting a fair number of birders.

Little stint

The two Little Stint showed well again at Peerie Spiggie with Turnstone (32) Ringed Plover (4)

Over at Swinster the Olive Backed Pipit showed three times but briefly so no photos.  Dipped on the Barred Warbler in Lerwick for the second time
